A detailed budget forecast will be provided prior to beginning your home. We work with you to solidify the investments and to ensure that your home will meet your expectations within your set budget. A transparent building process is followed including a monthly ledger detailing expenditures with each expense backed up with the corresponding invoice.

Crafting your home

Site supervisors and project managers work closely with you on a day-to-day basis. They are responsible for site safety, scheduling of trades, ordering supplies, and engaging you in the process. Each build requires submission to the City of Calgary for a development permit which will be provided by your designer or architect.

Frequently asked questions

Your home is most likely the biggest investment of your life. For this reason, every detail of the construction process should be carefully considered before building begins. At Riverview Custom Homes, we take pride in our work. So allow our team of experts to guide you through the questions you should ask before starting your home construction or renovation project.


What’s the difference between a typical home and a custom home?

A typical home usually has few options to choose from. You may be able to select the brick variations and a couple of tile designs. However, the sky is the limit when building a custom house! You can design your own home from the ground up. It’s your opportunity to have the home of your dreams.


Does custom home-building have a step-by-step process?

Yes, it absolutely does. There are four main steps. It might seem overwhelming initially, but you can rest easy knowing that working with the right contractors will make the process much easier!

  1. Real estate: You must find and purchase the ideal lot based on your needs and budget.
  2. Communicate with contractors: Discuss your wants and desires for your custom-built home. Many professionals from various fields, such as mechanical, architectural, etc., will help you convert your dream into more concrete terms for it to be constructed.
  3. Get the clearances: Obtain government permission to erect your home in your desired location.
  4. Begin construction: The last step is the construction process itself. At this step, your home is finally erected from the ground up.

What’s the typical timeframe for a custom home project?

It can sometimes take a year or two. For example, designing a home can take 2 to 3 months, getting a city permit takes around 2 to 3 months, and then you can add another year for the construction process (smaller homes may be quicker and larger homes may be longer). It can vary significantly based on project details and the situation. Occasionally, even if you are building a small home, it can take longer due to complexities, like a custom roof or electrical or mechanical requirements.

Periodically, even finishes inside your bathroom or kitchen can be complex and time-consuming. Other scenarios that can extend your project include setbacks from provincial administrations on clearance concerning construction. All of these variables will affect the overall timeline of your project.


What is the best area to build a custom home?

This question can only be answered by personal preferences. Think about your needs and current lifestyle and consider those factors when determining a neighbourhood to build your custom home.
